Light shined in the prison

Gulf Coast Prison Ministries has been conducting revivals in America’s prison system since 1987.  At present we have two full-time revival teams conducting approximately thirty meetings per year in ten states.  Our men minister in state prisons and county jails near their homes when not working prison revivals elsewhere.  We wear dress clothes and ties when in these facilities as ambassadors for Christ (II Corinthians 5:20).  We follow our designated team leader and always work under the direct authority of the institutional chaplain (Romans 13).

Our ministry also conducts several revivals per year in female prisons.  Our men always lead the team and do the preaching; however we utilize Christian women of like-faith for visitation and altar work.  We have a firm conviction to never take women into a male institution.


Working prisons and jails is much more restrictive than other outside ministries; therefore, we strive to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” (Matthew 10:16).

Our Motto is:

Simplicity in Preaching
Selective in Teaching
Steadfast in Reaching

Our mode of operation is not primarily to condemn one’s heresy, which we do with discretion, but rather to magnify the glorious gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, which we employ with boldness (Proverbs 18:1, Acts 19).  Our emphasis is salvation of the soul, sanctification for service, separation from sinners, and complete submission to the Savior.


Gulf Coast Prison Ministries fully endorses the King James 1611 Bible.  We believe it to be the infallible, inerrant, preserved Word of God in the English language.  Our conviction is that it stands by itself as our final authority in all matters of practice and faith without any support from the Greek, Hebrew, or any other language in order to change, correct, or enlarge its veracity and trustworthiness.
